  1. I am surprised they don’t maintain the same version in the Windows Store. Whenever I get a new device one of the first apps I install is the Kindle reader app. I have been really frustrated that the app I hav been downloading from the Windows store doesn’t support many of the features of the IOS, KIndle eReader, Kindle Tablet or Android versions. It does not have collections, table of contents, search for bookmarks etc. that I use a lot. So in spite of the fact that I prefer to use my Surface Pro most of the time when it comes to functions like these in other applications and even the web I end up using my iPad Pro (It’s still hard to beat a mouse for many precision functions).I originally came here to give a very negative review of the Windows store version. But this one is great and everything that the Windows Store one is not. Plus it has full mouse support so my searches, text marking and even moving from one chapter of a book to another from the table of contents is MUCH easier and more precise than touch with my big ham fingers.I realize that Amazon would prefer to sell books to those that own Kindles, but why support those features in the world on IOS and Android but leave the PC version from the store so crippled? Doesn’t make sense because I’m sure it is costing Amazon book sales.

  2. As a owner of two Fire TVs and two Kindle Fires, this app makes me feel absolutely disrespected as a customer. It’s obvious when Amazon doesn’t care about a user base because they release apps like this. It’s broken, it runs poorly, and it’s lacking in features. Compare this app to what you’ll find on iOS and there’s a huge disparity. The Kindle for PC app is flat out atrocious. That’s not a joke. It froze twice in a row just trying to load! I put the app in full screen mode, and guess what, there’s no way to take it out of full screen mode! With hundreds of millions of PC users, you’d think Amazon would care enough to create – BARE MINIMUM – a competent app. Considering this is Amazon we’re talking about, their e-reading software has no excuse for being this bad. Thankfully, the books I wanted to read were free so I didn’t lose any money on this deal. I just know in the future to buy my content (movies, music, video games, books) from a company that actually cares about me.

  3. I used to love reading books on my Surface Pro but since buying a new one and finding out there is no longer Windows app available, I’ve been forced to use the desktop application. Let me tell you straight up – the Kindle application for PC is an absolute joke. Where to start?The Interface (UI) – the interface is pathetic. You can make your page black but, unfortunately, the page only takes up about 25% of the available screen space and the rest of the screen stays the same colour. That means you can forget about reading in a dark room or before bed from this application. There is no way to make the “page” – I put the word in inverted commas because it’s more like a tiny strip down the middle of the screen – do anything like fill the screen, even in “full screen” mode, no matter which way you orient your device or what options you try. Even the way the UI looks is what you’d expect from the very lamest freeware, like something that was made 20 years ago and has hardly been updated since.Features – you don’t get any of the features they advertise, they seem to be reserved for users of other platforms. To be fair, the application is usable as a librarian/organiser for your books but not in any way useful as an actual reader. You’ll be lucky if you can manage half a page of text per screen. Then there is the complete lack of right-click functionality, which you’d expect could be really handy in an application like this. Honestly, though, I can’t think of the last time I encountered a software application with no right-click functionality at all. Even Notepad has a right-click menu. You get a limited one in the Library but nothing at all on the reading side.Overall – Amazon should be ashamed and embarrassed to offer something so clearly useless to their customers. When you compare it to the Windows 8 (Metro) app or any phone app, it simply doesn’t measure up. It’s so bad that it got me looking at the Kobo app, which is everything this application is not – the Kobo app feels modern and slick and looks like it will be a joy to use as an eReader. It’s also got a great built-in store that makes it dead simple to buy books. It’s so much better that, after thinking about it long and hard, I’ve decided that once I finish the books I have, I’m going to get myself a Kobo and sell my Kindle on eBay. I won’t put up with being treated like a second-class citizen and you shouldn’t, either.
